Vacation, Day 6

Today was pretty stellar. We spent the entire day in and around the Grand Tetons National Park.


The Snowcapped Tetons!

There are literally books on all the trails around the Tetons that you can hike. We decided to stick to one that’s close to our cabin, so we went with the “Hidden Falls” trail on Jenny Lake.

Jenny Lake is one of the smaller lakes in the Tetons but it’s no less beautiful lined by the mountains and fed by a huge waterfall known as Hidden Falls. I love a waterfall and while this one was a little to intense (and probably freezing) to get in and frolick around, it was still amazing to look at. And after a decent inclining all the way hike, a cool waterfall breeze is just what the doctor ordered. Zack and I decided to take the long way getting there and the short way back, and after passing the falls and taking the short way back, we were SO glad we did! The way we took out had about a 420’ incline over a 2.5 mile hike, while the “short way” was the same elevation in about a half mile. I was never so happy to have taken the long way and gradually walked up a mountain, than having to take giant 1.5’ steps up a half mile. Ugh. I don’t know how some of those people were doing it. Luckily, we weren’t one of those people. And, we were rewarded with a boat ride, while those suckers had to do it the other way around. Suckers indeed.

A small bummer of a thing was that as we were walking up the trail, the couple in front of us seemed startled all of the sudden and then the guy ran up the side of this hill. Apparently they’d seen a black bear! We’d missed it by less than a minute. Uggh!! Hopefully my luck will change in Yellowstone! If it’s going to change anywhere, it has to be there, right? We’ll find out tomorrow!

The rest of the time in the Tetons we just took a few scenic drives around Jackson (including a stop in what I thought was a “town” called Kelly, WY. Apparently it’s just a campground).



We also got to find out what this giant face we’d been seeing on this mountain was. Seriously, it looked like a persons face. Turns out it’s a landslide! Who knew.

Vacation, Day 5

I know this is Day 6 stuff but I just wanted to say congratulations to ALL of my friends, and all the gay celebrities I wish I was friends with, Congratulations! And thank you Supreme Court, for recognizing that certain laws were made to discriminate and should be done away with! Love for all 🙂 It’s a beautiful morning to wake up in a country that is closer to recognizing equality for everyone! Ok, stepping off my high horse! Back to vacationing!

Day 5 kind of snuck up on us. First of all, we realized when we got to the campground on whatever day that was (it seems so long ago) that we were actually a day ahead of schedule. Luckily, all the places we reserved were happy to fix up our reservations so that minor scare ended up being totally fine and now we will get an extra day in Yellowstone! I can’t tell you how happy that makes me. Although, writing this in our amazing cabin, it’s going to be hard to leave this amazing place and go back to camping… but I’m sure Yellowstone will be worth sleeping on the ground again. Not to mention my wallet, which I’m sure will thank us for not staying at this cabin for more than our 2 allotted days!


Our cabin (complete with firepit and free smores!)

So, why did Day 5 sneak up on us? Well, mostly because I completely forgot we had a 9 hour drive to Jackson Hole! We kind of piddled around in the morning,


We got donuts at a local bakery, for one. 


We also checked out the wildlife loop one more time, where I captured this gem!

Then, we were going to go to this horse sanctuary, but when we realized how long the drive was to Jackson, we thought it might be good to just get on the road again! Not to mention there were a few “scenic by-ways” we wanted to take so we knew it was going to be longer than 9 hours in the car (luckily it only ended up being about 11 hours, so we didn’t detour too much).

On the ride we got to go through Bighorn National Forest. It’s breathtaking. You finally, for better or worse, start seeing mountains with SNOW still on them. Not a ton but enough to worry me that it wasn’t going to be that sunny warm vacation. The mountains and valleys and the creeks in the valleys were just awesome.

I think it’s safe to say that of all the states we’ve driven through, Wyoming has been decidedly less boring than the previous states. Every 150-200 miles was like you were in a different part of the country! It’s the only day of all the days, that we actually took a lot of pictures while driving, in addition to the GoPro picture taking.

Today we’re going to explore the Grand Tetons, which looked pretty sick on the way in so I’m sure it’ll be a great day (albeit possibly a chilly/un-warm day – I refuse to be cold on vacation!)

Vacation, Day 4

Day 4. And what a sweet day it was. I think Brooks Robinson had something to do with it… ok, no I don’t.

Today we ventured into Custer State Park which has 3 major draws. First, Needles Highway which is an amazing geological feature in and of itself. I’m sure the pictures wont even do this place justice. The coolest part are all the awesome rocks, and overlooks. The worst part is driving on it. I’m not great with heights and I’m definitely not great with steep ledges and drop offs that are thousands of feet down.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Here is a video from one of the highest points we drove to (and certainly one of the scariest roads we drove on to get there):

The second great part about Custer State Park, was what was known as “Wildlife Loop”. At first Wildlife Loop seemed like a complete bust. Field after field with no buffalo. We saw deer EVERYWHERE but just NO buffalo. Anywhere. But then, we turned a corner and low and behold, there were buffalo. And they were everywhere! We could not escape them. It was pretty amazing.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The third great thing was something that no one told me about. There are these rock tunnels (those I knew about) that perfectly frame out Mt. Rushmore as you’re driving through them. It’s an engineering feat that I was super impressed with. Those tunnels were by far one of my favorite parts of driving around today.



Obviously, being so close we also went to see Mt. Rushmore (which, I have to be cheap and mention that we went out of our way to buy that “all inclusive” pass for National Parks, but then you have to pay $11 to park there? Gip!).


Mt. Rushmore was super awesome. All the presidents were super hot and looking just as handsome as ever (although I felt bad for Teddy, being so smushed in there). I’m also all for adding a second Mt. Rushmore with all the other newer but equally as gorgeous, modern Presidents. Maybe we could just add them to Mt. Rushmore? If we’re going for hotness in the looks category (post-Teddy Roosevelt), I’d have to go with Clinton, Obama, W. and Reagan. If we’re going on hotness based on good deeds and what they did for America (which I think is pretty hot), I think it would look like this…


All in all it was an amazing day. The weather was perfect when it needed to be, and not terrible when I thought it was going to be, so all in all, perfect day! We also went to a little zoo-ish type place but I’ll talk about that on another day!

Vacation, Day 3

We can’t update too much today (and I can’t upload any pictures because the internet here is spotty at best) We can upload all sorts of pictures because we’re camping for Day 3 and 4, and there’s so much fun stuff to see! We’re staying at the Wheels West Campground which we thought might be a bust because it’s in kind of an odd location. However, that odd location seems to be a favorite for a lot of local (whitetail, I believe) deer! We even saw a baby deer that a resident of the campground told us she had just 2 days ago! I think everyone is aware of my love of baby animals so to see a momma deer and her baby right off the bat made me very happy (here’s a video of them running away from us)! Sorry, I’m talking about day 4 things so lets get back to Day 3 things!


The first of many baby animals we’d see

We started things off in Mitchell, SD where we met up with one of my great old friends, Jan who I went to high school with. She and her husband live in this part of the state so I was super excited that we could meet up, even if it was only for breakfast. It was great to catch up and I’m currently trying to convince her she needs a week or two in Maryland because it misses her greatly.


This is Jan and I


And this is most of what the summer of 2000 looked like. Not to be confused with the summer of 1969, which Jan wishes it was.

As for Day 3, it was definitely more travelling. I think we clocked in another solid 5-6 hours of driving time but luckily this time it was filled with 2 really awesome… ok one really awesome and one moderately awesome stop.

The first stop was the “Scenic Byway” loop of Badlands National Park. Which is amazing. It looked like mountains of wet sandcastles, if you can picture it. And if not, well you’re in luck. I in fact have, some pictures for you! As with most things the pictures don’t convey the beauty but let me tell you, there’s a lot of beauty there. Especially going in what this area would call “springtime”. Everything is blooming that can so it’s actually much more lush than normal. Some of the places we saw as we drove, I couldn’t help bursting out lyrics from the Circle of Life. They just looked like they could be prairie lands or something.

The BEST part of the badlands though, was seeing some goats and prairie dogs!! They were so stinkin’ cute!! I couldn’t even stand the little prairie dogs peeking out of their holes. omg.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

We took a few videos while we were in the badlands so you can check them out here, here and here! The last one has some mountain goats running away from us.

The second part of Day 4 was hitting up “America’s #1 Tourist Destination (along Rt. 90, I assume)”. It’s one of those “must do” things according to folks who make the trek out here. Multiple people had actually told us to stop there. Turns out, it’s just a timey old fashion tourist trap strip mall. I mean, it’s kind of cool and a touch quaint, but I think Zack and I have made the decision that, while we like kitchy fun things (ie – worlds largest anything), this and the corn palace were just a touch too tourist-trap-like for us to really enjoy ourselves. If there was one picture to describe Wall Drug, it would probably be this:


The greatest thing about leaving Wall Drug though? Well, you start to see mountains within about 30 minutes, and that’s when you realize you really have driven just about across the country, which is an amazing feeling! We’re finally really here in the West. I’m so excited to start our first real full day of sightseeing around Rushmore, Custer, Needles and what people have called “The Wildlife Loop” – I don’t know what it is but it is most definitely right up my alley!

Vacation, Day 2

So Day 2 of vacation wasn’t as long a day of driving as the previous day, but I swear it almost felt longer. Nothing against Minnesota but damn, it takes a long time to get through your state and it is pretty damn flat for a LOT of it. haha. We drove for 9 hours and besides wind farms and fields, we didn’t see much. That’s with the exception of 2 things.

First, the highlight of the drive was most certainly crossing the Mighty Mississippi River for the first time (driving anyway). They really should call it the Mighty Mississippi and not just lame old “Mississippi River”. But it is what it is.

It was pretty exciting. As kayakers, we can always appreciate a good river. Although, I’d never kayak in this river. This is definitely a big boat river. Especially around the locks which are around where we were crossing.



The second great thing was this little store/restaurant called “Amish Ovens” somewhere on the road .I don’t remember exactly where, but they had these amazing apple cake things. We were good though, and only split one.

Oh, and also we saw some really funny signs for the Spam Museum but we never actually saw it. Bummer.

The lack of scenery changed when we arrived at our final destination for the evening. We arrived in Mitchell, SD around 6pm. It may seem like a small, inconsequential town, but Mitchell knows otherwise. Mitchell is home of the one, and only (as they like to emphasize) Corn Palace.


They decorate this entire building, inside and out, with new and exciting murals EVERY YEAR. And it’s made entirely of corn products. Husk, cobs, etc. What’s really cool are the indoor murals. The video you can watch show how they make the murals and it’s basically a big “Corn by Numbers” pattern.



For some reason I also feel like I appreciate the show “Parks and Rec” a little more after watching the little video they make you watch. Apparently there was a competition when Sioux Falls tried to build their own Corn Palace. When they failed was when Mitchell decided they’d be the ones to do it! And they did, so now they’re famous. For a Corn Palace.

They’re in the middle of fixing up this years for their big festival in August, so this is technically last years design, but it’s pretty sweet if I can say so. The place is used for concerts, high school basketball games, etc. When we arrived there were just little stores set up on the floor. That was fine by me because there’s nothing I love more than kitchy knick knack crap. It’s right up my alley. I’ll warn you that if you stop to see the corn palace, you maybe need an hour in the whole town, but it’s a cute little town, for sure.

Vacation Day 1

Here’s my theme song while I write this post this morning.

It’s soothing me. And it’s been stuck in my head for a week thanks to my LOST Re-Watch. Oh, and this is my view this morning as I type this…


We have to drive through this for the next few hours…

So lets get this trip started! Yesterday we had the goal of being on the road by 6AM. We were on the road by 9AM but I was actually really happy with that. We had a lot of loose ends to tie up, but they all got squared away and we were on our way!


0 hours into the trip and we’re all smiles!


Our noble steed


My loyal driver and loving husband (somewhere around Ohio)


My view for the trip.

We drove over 14 hours (a solid 13 of that being driving time as we only stopped for gas, a brief lunch, and dinner) and made it alllll the way from Sykesville, MD to Madison, WI! I never would’ve thought we’d make it that far but when we were pulling into our hotel Zack said he could’ve easily gone another 5 hours. Unfortunately for him, his trustee navigator only had about 30 minutes before she was DEFINITELY done. What’s crazier though, is that we thought we’d just find a place to stay right outside of Chicago around Rockford. What we didn’t know was that there was some kind of amazing going on in Illinois last night because we called over 8 hotels from Rockford, to where we ended up and EVERY.SINGLE.ONE. was booked. How is that possible in random Illinois? I don’t even know. And what’s crazier was that the first hotel we stopped at told us (and 3 other hotels up the road after that), that not only were they booked, but all the hotels in the entire AREA were booked! How is that even possible?

Around hour 14 we also hit a sick thunder/lightening storm. Not a ton of rain but a TON of lightening! We didn’t get any pictures because, I don’t know if you know this, but lightening is really hard to get pictures of. If you didn’t know that well, you’re welcome for that little tid bit of information. And since we were in a car, I couldn’t exactly do a time lapse with my camera. One thing we are doing though, is that we have our GoPro set up during the daylight hours of hour trip (it made it just passed Chicago last night) shooting images every 30 seconds of our trip! Yesterday it took over 1400 pictures! And some were really cool. And then there were a lot of us behind a fed-ex truck. I swear, at least 400 of those pictures are probably of the back of a fed-ex truck. But that fed-ex truck was not only moving really well, but by being behind him, I’m sure we were improving our gas mileage. I mean, that’s what science told me. That was one thing Zack and I were both really worried about (having the truck so loaded down, what kind of gas mileage were we getting in this thing. We’re happy to report we’re still getting a solid 18 mpg, so we’re happy).

I’ll upload more pictures from Day 1 at some point (or just load our go pro video) but for now, here are sa couple of Chicago pictures (drive-by style). I can’t wait to go back there someday soon for a nice long weekend or something. It looks like such a fun City! And the architecture was really amazing.

I’m Feeling LOST again…

You know those people that try to maybe, clean their house, and then they end up finding some old photo album or yearbook and spend hours looking through old photos/things instead of cleaning? Yeah, that happens to me a lot. I dare say every time I clean.

Anyway, the other day I was cleaning out my computer to try and get some more space and I found this document called “LOST Favorites”. It was under my “Important Things” folder so obviously it wasn’t trash. That folder includes my most important files, obviously. So I clicked it open and what I found was a questionnaire about one of the most important TV shows in my history of TV viewing. I thought I’d share not only my answers, but a little on why I picked what I picked. The first section was a “Top 3” and the second was a “Superlatives” section. My superlatives are probably a little lame because in perusing, I realized I had only half filled the section and trying to think back to a show that ended over 3 years ago, I was really filling it in with the obvious. My Top 3 was quite different though. It was obviously very thought out. Some typical/some a-typical. So I’ll just share the Top 3 part of the Questionnaire.


1. “The Cost of Living” (Season 3)


AKA – The one where Eko dies.

Eko was definitely in my Top 3 of favorite characters too so it might seem strange that I’d pick the episode where he dies as one of my favorites. But I loved the backstory that they gave him, I loved his torment over whether or not he was a good person both in Africa and on the Island. I also loved the interaction Eko had with the Smoke Monster and if there was ever an “early on” episode where you get a glimpse of what this thing might be, it’s this one. This episode also has some of my favorite lines, but I’ll bring that up later 😉 Oh, and this is just a side bar but I also loved the scene with Jack and Juliet where she’s talking about what a great man Ben is, while on the TV screen she’s asking Jack to kill him on the operating table. Who are these others anyway?

2. “The Constant” (Season 4)


AKA – The one where Desmond reconnects with Penny!

How anyone could say this wasn’t one of their favorite episodes, is beyond me. Or maybe they’re just heartless. And yes, maybe this was just a favorite moment, more than a favorite episode, but it was also proof of what an amazing actor Henry Ian Cusick is. He plays “losing his mind” so incredibly well! The interaction of Daniel and Desmond was also quite nice. I wasn’t really a fan of the “freighter story line” so this episode was a breath of fresh air. I loved Desmond finding “past Daniel” and talking about “future Daniel”. It’s just amazing script writing, and I don’t even like sci-fi. But, I do love good writing and this was good writing at it’s BEST! And of course it was written by Damon and Carlton. As if there were any doubt.

3. Walkabout (Season 1)


AKA – Don’t Tell Me What I Can’t Do!

Season 1. Episode 4. My favorite episode of this entire thing. Locke was always a character I could never decide if I liked or not. I think that’s still up for debate. Nevertheless, I was consistently fascinated by him. Especially after this particular episode! It’s crazy how much sympathy I had for him and I hadn’t even REALIZED all the crazy terrible things that had happened in his life prior to the plane crash. Really, finding out he was in a wheelchair was almost trivial compared to how he got in the wheelchair! I believe if I recall correctly, this was also the first episode where Jack sees Christian. Not that we knew who he was at that point. Oh also, a side note that this episode was also great for comic relief when Charlie and Hurley decide to go fishing.

Honorable Mention – The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham


What’s funny about this category is that whoever made the document even wrote “You probably only have 2, but that’s ok”. And they say that because if you’ve watched LOST like I watched LOST, you know the only 2 bad episodes were Expose (with Nikki and Paulo) and Stranger in a Strange Land (where Jack is in Thailand with a porn star). If I had to add a third I’d probably just say The Finale. And that’s only because it ended.


This category wasn’t that difficult to decide “moments”, either. I mean, I couldn’t begin to count the other kind of tear up moments but the feel good moments were (for better or worse), few and far between for me.

1. As mentioned above, Des and Penny’s phone call is definitely in the top 3. The episode was so stressful and draining that it just made that sweet moment at the end, that much more magical!

2. Hurley and Libby’s kiss in Season 6. Libby was one of the weirdest characters for me. She was always a backstory I wanted but I understand not getting it. But her relationship with Hurley, now that was a weird thing all around! Not that she would be into him, but just her attitude and persona, it didn’t really seem to go with Hurley. But, Hurley loved her, and he was SUUUUUUUPER sad when she died. I wanted to also specifically say it was the time in Season 6 (in the flash-sideways episode “Everybody Loves Hugo”) and not their real first kiss that was my feel good moment. The scene where they’re on the beach and Hurley says he doesn’t think Libby is crazy and maybe he does remember (all the while Desmond is watching from a car – creeepy). But that moment was so sweet and definitely a feel good moment!

3. Charlie and Claire eating peanut butter. Specifically, the fake peanut butter. It was such a tender moment and I started not hating Charlie anymore. I don’t think I ever really liked him until the episode where he dies, but none the less, that was a moment that made me warm up to him.



Honestly, this list could be a mile long. I cried a LOT of real non-happy tears for this show, for SOOO many reasons! So I have a Top 3, but I have some honorable mentions as well. Oh and in case you were wondering, they’re all when someone dies. So, in order of  least to most tears cried, it would go –

1. When Sun and Jin die as their hands are drifting apart underwater. Just like Titanic man, you said you’d never let go! Although I guess at least they got to die together. No matter the child they left behind… maybe I cried for their little girl more than for them, and maybe it was happy tears for them? It’s hard to say.

2. When Juliet dies. I NEVER liked Juliet. I kind of hated her for most of her run on the show, but her backstory and capture on the island was definitely something that softened me, and then by the time she died, well, I definitely felt bad for her, for so many reasons. And for Jack too. Although, Jacks death was probably one of the few I didn’t cry for. Now, had they shown Vincent dying ever, well, don’t even get me started on what a hot mess I would’ve been then! ** Honorable Mention for Happy Tears should’ve also gone to Jack as he’s dying on the Island and Vincent curls up with him so that he doesn’t have to “die alone” 

3. The death I most certainly cried the most for, was probably the same as everyone else. And it can be summed up in 3 little words.


Runners-up include – John Lock banging on the hatch, any time Hurley or Sayid cried, when Locke is about to hang himself, and I WOULD say when Alex died but those tears never formed because I think I was just shocked more than anything else that they killed her. Holy not expecting that Batman! And speaking of moments you’re not expecting…



1. Locke in the Coffin – I mean really, no one saw that coming. How was that even possible????


2. When Keamy shoots Alex (or Widmore, as it were). God Keamy was a dick.
“He changed the rules” – Michael Emerson can deliver a line! 


3. When the light turned on in the hatch. If realizing Locke could walk wasn’t a WTF
moment in and of itself (it was but I’ve already used it, and this episode too I guess but whatever),
this was one of the biggest WTF moments for me!

BEST MYSTERY (that was solved)

I’d like to stick with only mysteries that were solved but I’ll admit there were also some really good mysteries that were never solved.  I also stuck with the bigger mysteries and not the little solved mysteries.

1. The Smoke Monster – The Smoke Monster was sexy Man in Black. A lot of people didn’t really like the reveal of this mystery but I actually thought it was, if nothing else, one of the better reveals. Didn’t hurt they picked a great actor to play him (and Jacob). Just makes me think of my favorite Man in Black lines – “They come, they fight, they destroy, they corrupt, it all ends the same” and also “Do you have any idea how badly I want to kill you?” 

2. Who was Henry Gale – It’s creepy Benjamin Linus, King of the Others. Check out right around the 1 minute mark… it’s just eerily good! Sooo freaking good. Doesn’t hurt that Sayid does the finding out. God I loved Sayid. Want proof? May I present to you, exhibit A: The top of the filing cabinet in my office:


3. Why do all these dead people keep showing up? Again, we look to the Man in Black. That sneaky mother fucker.

Honorable Mentions – The Polar Bears (quasi solved I suppose), Super tall Walt (loved the nods to him looking so much older), that weird room where they brainwashed the kids, Richard freaking Alpert! Eloise Hawking.


I took Main Character to mean “appeared in most the episodes in a majority of the seasons” . I think that’s fair.

1. Hurley – I mean come on. Hurley. Sure, no one really knew what he was about and a lot of people thought he was comic relief (he was for a good chunk of the earlier seasons) but then to go on to be the most important person on the island, well, he came a long way. What wasn’t there to like about him though, really?

2. Sayid – I. Loved. Sayid. I may’ve mentioned that before (see above). I loved everything about Sayid but my favorite Sayid moment was from “He’s Our You” and that line from season 1, “My name is Sayid Jarrah, and I am a torturer”. Swooooooooooooooooon.

3. Ben – What’s not to love about Benjamin Linus? Really? There’s a lot I love about Benjamin Linus (and even more that I love about Michael Emerson. That Emmy didn’t win itself). Maybe he should be under “Best Baddie” but really he’s so much more than that. A pawn in some crazy game between good and evil.


1. Richard Alpert – Mr. Guyliner himself. I loved Richard. I loved trying to figure out who he was, why he didn’t age, how was he affiliated with Ben and why, and then to find out he’s actually more affiliated with Jacob and the Man in Black. He was a man of many mysteries and that’s what I liked most about him.

2. Daniel Faraday – This is a character that I wish would’ve been on the plane just because I hate how few episodes he was actually in. I mean, I get it, but seeing him more (even if it meant a small plot re-write) would’ve been spectacular. His episode, “The Variable” was crazy good. The only thing that bothered me about Daniel was that the actor, Jeremy Davies, played Charles Manson in a made for TV movie so I inherently thought he would ultimately be a bad guy and didn’t really trust him until much further into his time on the series.

3. Mr. Eko – I already mentioned my love for Mr. Eko so I’ll just reiterate that yes, I’m a big fan.

Honerable Mention – Rose and Bernard! Oh and also Miles. And obviously Jacob/The Man in Black 


1. Jack – Ugh. I hated Jack. Cry baby, boring plot lines, obsessed with his father, all of the 1 million times we got to hear him say “Live Together or Die Alone” – ok, I get it! I hated that he was such an integral part of the show. I kind of wish he’d just closed his eyes around Season 2, and never opened them again.

2. Kate – I didn’t totally hate Kate, I just hated all of her “centric” episodes (you realize she had 10 centric episodes!). None of them would’ve been anywhere close to a favorite episode. She just drove me nuts for so many reasons. And how on earth was she dating Charlie in real life? That never made sense to me. This article sums up my reasons quite nicely. The only thing I hated more than Kate, was Kate with Jack. She totally should’ve stayed with Sawyer.

3. Radzinsky – Yes the guy did a really good job at making me hate him, but not in a good way like Ethan or Ben.


1. Ethan Rom – Ethan still scares me when I see him on TV (he appears in a lot of guest roles on TV shows – Criminal Minds I remember specifically). Heebeejeebee’s in FULL effect! When he was all soaking wet, really all the scenes of him and Claire, he was just so eerily creepy in the perfect creepy person way!

2. Sawyer – You can’t not think Sawyer is a bad guy. I mean, yes, he had good moments and ultimately was good, but you also have to admit that for a lot of the season, he was the resident “bad guy” of the Oceanic group. But he played bad SOOO well! And of these bad guys he was definitely the hottest! Case in point – Him, Kate and the polar bear cage. Hotness.

3. Keamy – He killed a girl he wasn’t supposed to kill, among all the other bad things he did, which I imagine were probably worse than even Sayid, no? But really he gets ultimate baddie for killing Alex. What a douche.

Honorable Mention – Mikhail aka Patchy aka the guy that wouldn’t die. 


1. I’ve looked into the eye of this Island, and what I saw was beautiful
– John Locke White Rabbit

2.   Don’t mistake coincidence for fate
– Mr. Eko What Kate Did

3.   It only ends once. Anything that happens before that is just progress.
– Jacob The Incident



1. Caesar: You know him?
Locke: He’s the man who killed me.
The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham   

2. Ben: What about me?
Jacob: What about you?
The Incident

3. Sawyer: You know what I think, Ali? I think you’ve never actually tortured anybody in your life.
Sayid: Unfortunately for us both, you are wrong.
      Confidence Man


1. I guess it’s a good thing I’m not one of them, huh? You guys got any milk?
– Ben Linus The Whole Truth

2. A twelve-year-old Ben Linus brought me a chicken salad sandwich. How do you think I’m doing?
– Sayid Jarrah, He’s Our You

3. I think I liked you better when you just hit people with your stick.
– Bernard to Eko, S.O.S.

And that’s it! Well, of the “Top 3” Questions. Hope you liked what I had to write. I’d be interested in hearing what everyone else thinks of some of these Top 3 and their own Top 3!
